For those who are interested, you can donate direct to the International Red Cross to aid the search and rescue and also fund mobile kitchens, etc. for the homeless:
100% of your donation goes to the people in need. It won't be soaked up in bureaucracy.
It's pretty painless - you can opt to be anonymous, or give just as much personal info as you wish. Donation is by credit card. You don't have to register or accept the newsletter (you can untick the option). Only if you want a receipt do you need to give an email.
